In the article section, I posted this piece. I was shocked to see that cotton was BAD for my feet. If you go to that link in the "News & Articles" you will see posts from people who have recommended socks that they use.

Thanks for sharing,
I am also shocked. I was told by my diabetic coordinator to wear clean white cotton socks every day.No mention of synthetics. This is why we need a site like this,with people to keep us informed of the changes that happen daily.
